Passengers hospitalised during stay on the TUI Marella Dream Cruise

British holidaymakers have recently commented on the website Cruise Critic after a December 2017 cruise on board the Marella Dream Cruise Ship was reportedly plagued by illness.

One recent passenger commented:

“Despite no information from the staff it became clear very quickly that the ship was carrying a serious bug and had been for several weeks before we boarded.

“Passengers were very ill, some hospitalised at various ports, many on drips in their cabins.

We departed the ship on Friday 5th Jan whereby the ship was getting a full sanitisation in Tenerife but they were still allowing passages to travel on it, which in my opinion was wrong given the level of the illness and serious nature of the bug.”

Another holidaymaker claimed that “one person was airlifted to hospital” and others “on drips”.

Comments from our legal expert

“We are highly concerned to hear of reports of sickness on board the Marella Dream Cruise Ship.

“Passengers who have suffered symptoms of illness caused by poor food or failings in hygiene standards on board a cruise ship may be entitled to make a claim against their cruise operator.

“Here at YourHolidayClaims, our specialist legal team is available to speak to anyone affected by sickness during a cruise holiday and quickly advise on whether they could be entitled to compensation for the ruined holiday.”

Having never thought to have contacted a solicitor to pursue a claim for compensation before, I am glad that I instructed Your Holiday Claims to deal with my claim following a holiday illness I suffered during my stay in Egypt.

We are very happy with the outcome of our case, especially as we were not offered anything from the tour operator we had booked our holiday with.
